Since June, Kramer has been selling eight additional telehandler models with 6-9 m stacking height in agriculture (KT306, KT356, KT307, KT357, KT447, KT507, KT557, KT559). In addition to the implementation of the normative new tractor regulations for the model year 2018, a new operating concept will be used that enables an intuitive operation of all functions by using the electronically pilot-operated all-in-one joystick and the jog dial control element. For example, the joystick's sensitivity can be individually adjusted with this. All relevant vehicle data and settings are displayed via the new 7" display. A special innovation used for the models KT507, KT557 and KT559 is the new hydrostatic drive system "ecospeedPRO" with 370cc capacity for increased tractive force and driving dynamics. These are just a few examples of the Kramer telehandler series for the 2018 model year. The KT357 and KT557 were available for viewing at Agritechnica as an example of the new series.
Kramer was again represented this year at the world's largest agricultural technology exhibition Agritechnica. At a nearly 440 m² stand, Kramer exhibited a cross-section of the agricultural green product series. This included numerous new products and innovations, which were presented to the public for the first time at the world's leading trade fair: Agritechnica. In addition, the company was represented with an exhibition area on the stand of the new strategic partner John Deere.
As a special highlight, Kramer-Werke GmbH presented an all wheel steer loader in the 9-10 ton operating weight class, the KL60.8, for the first time at Agritechnica 2017.
The product portfolio in the wheel loader sector reaches new heights with this loader. The series equipment is already very comprehensive and includes, among other things, a large LCD display with integrated reversing camera, automatic air conditioning as well as an optional automatic bucket return. The package consisting of powerful load-sensing hydraulics, innovative ecospeedPRO drive system and the time-tested and proven Deutz engine make the new Kramer wheel loader into a good selection for the discerning farmer. The impressive power rating is supplemented by the all-wheel steering typical of Kramer, which stands for optimal stability, manoeuvrability and compactness. As usual with Kramer, the vehicle can be adapted to individual requirements through a variety of performance options.
Overall, Kramer exhibited ten machines on the main stand that guaranteed a good overview of the entire product portfolio. In addition to the new products, the models Kramer KL12.5, the first all wheel steer electric loader KL25.5e, KL30.8T and the KL43.8L were additional exhibits on site as a cross-section of the wheel loader and telescopic wheel loader offer. The KT276, the KT447 and the largest model of the Kramer telehandler series, the KT559, were exhibited in addition to the already mentioned telehandlers KT357 and KT557. The telescopic wheel loader KL35.8T and the telehandlers KT357 and KT557 were available for viewing at the John Deere stand in hall 13 E30. The diverse application areas of the Kramer machines in the agricultural sector were presented through the mounting of attachments made for this purpose. In this way, the right attachment can be mounted in the front or rear for any requirement. It is a flexible machine concept that makes many everyday processes easier in the agricultural value-added chain.
Many of the interested trade fair visitors who were once again drawn to the tradition-rich company's stand were impressed by the numerous new products and innovative solutions tailored to customer needs.
